Microsoft’s Bing Maps division has today announced its biggest update yet of satellite and aerial imagery, rolling out a total 165 terabytes of new imagery to its online mapping tool.
The update, which is now live across Bing Maps around the world, brings a series of enhancements to the Australian edition alongside other countries including North America, South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.
As shown in the update map (above), the majority of Australia’s Eastern seaboard has been updated, with most of the Australian coastline also receiving new imagery. Capital cities appear to have been targeted, with all Australian cities well within the update hotspots.
Microsoft isn’t stopping here however, promising further updates to come and saying it is only 85% complete in its imagery project.
For those that use the tool, the update is said to bring greatly improved and more relevant imagery, with the new imagery covering more than 38 million square kilometers across the world.
